The L5 antigenic determinant was previously suggested to be a carbohydrate epitope present on murine cell recognition molecules in the developing brain and to be an early neural marker in the chick embryo. Here, we show that L5 immunoreactivity is associated with complex-type N-glycosidic oligosaccharides. To identify the carbohydrate structure recognized(More)
Since the United Nations introduced the nonsymmetrical make-use input-output (I-O) tables in 1968, there have been ongoing discussions about ways to translate them into symmetric I-O tables. The discussions have focused on secondary products that cause the asymmetry between industries and commodities and two alternative assumptions, the industry-technology(More)
In our laboratories, for several years, two phenolic compounds have been detected during gas chromatographic-mass spectrometric analysis of urinary steroid extracts from human and animal species. Although features of the mass spectra of their trimethylsilyl (TMS) ether derivatives resembled those of oestrogens, they were atypical of steroids. The(More)

The comparative effect of semi-dimensional (SD) and non-dimensional (ND) normalisation on the results of a longitudinal study of gait in 5-12-year old children was investigated. The use of both height and leg length in the normalisation was examined. Only ND analysis could be used to identify subjects with the same accelerations. ND analysis of the(More)
A diversity of high-affinity oligosaccharide ligands are identified for NKR-P1, a membrane protein on natural killer (NK) cells which contains an extracellular Ca(2+)-dependent lectin domain. Interactions of such oligosaccharides on the target cell surface with NKR-P1 on the killer cell surface are crucial both for target cell recognition and for delivery(More)
A general method is described for the detailed qualitative and quantitative analysis of bile acids and related compounds from feces. The technique utilizes a novel combination of liquid-gel and liquid-solid extraction, lipophilic ion exchange chromatography, and capillary column gas-liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry, which permits the(More)
